Boron Matters

Healthy crop growth depends on the right balance of nutrients in soil. Soil needs macronutrients - nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, calcium, and magnesium - but they are only one piece of the puzzle. Just as important are micronutrients, such as iron, copper, zinc - and boron. It may be hard to imagine a nutrient found in such small quantity could be so impactful, however it is vital to many plant functions.

aragonite vs. limestone

The Aragonite that Fertrell supplies to customers is essentially a mineral form of calcium that comes from the sea.  Generally it runs from 33%-39% readily available calcium.  What this really means is that the calcium is immediately available, at a high percentage, and starts working with the soil right away.  Therefore, Aragonite can be applied in fall or spring.
